Report on the Osier Holt Enclosure for the CRA 150th Anniversary Town Bumps 2018


The organisers of the enclosure in the past (Chris and Peta Parkhouse for ten years and Simon Simon Fairhall on behalf of Living Sport last year) were no longer able to devote their time to what had been a well run event.

Bill Key, the President, decided that this would be an ideal opportunity for the Cambridgeshire Rowing Association to take over the operation of the enclosure particularly as it marked the 150th Anniversary of the Town Bumps and agreement was made with the Fen Ditton Townlands Trust.

Osier Holt gives a commanding view of the Bumps Course from the Gun Shed to Grassy Corner.

Members and friends of the CRA Clubs were invited to attend and and encouraged to bring a picnic along with them.

The important job of controlling access was carried out by members of the 26th Cambridge Scout Group.

We were fortunate to have the services of Milton Brewery who provided a beer tent during the week and served light refreshments.

We had glorious weather for the whole week and the enclosure proved very popular particularly for young families many of whom bought picnics.

Report on CRA 150th Bumps Anniversary Dinner, Saturday 14th July 2018


Members of the Cambridgshire Rowing Association decided that this momentous anniversary should be celebrated in the form of a formal dinner and this was held in the wonderful surroundings of Wolfson College.

Their were a hundred guests both young and old representing all the local clubs and included many CRA Vice Presidents. Present and past Bump's Secretaries comprising Owen Patman, John Jenner, Stephen Allen and Jess Upton also attended.

On a glorious evening the reception, sponsored by Greenwoods GRM was held in the garden before settling down to an excellent dinner in the College Dining Room.

After the meal Coner Burgess, member of the Senior Committee of the Cambridge University Combined Boat Clubs gave a speech on behalf of the CUCBC and proposed a toast to the CRA. Bill Key, President of the Cambridgeshire Rowing Association, responded and after an introduction recited his Ode to the Bumps which he had written for the Cambridge Scouts' Boat Club Golden Jubilee in 1973.

Afterwards the President presented a water colour of the Bumps Course painted by Tom Davies to Stephen Allen and inscribed:

Presented to Stephen Allen by the President of the Cambridgeshire Rowing Association in recognition of 25 years devoted contribution to the organisation of “The Town Bumps”.

Guests mingled in the Dining Hall after the formal dinner before moving to the College Bar where many reminiscences continued to be exchanged until late into the evening.

Photographs from the event can be viewed in the photo gallery.

President, Cambridgeshire Rowing Association.
